Sally's Recipe Of The Week: Fettuccine Alfredo

Fettuccine Alfredo

Serves 2 as main or 4 as side

Here is what you need:

1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese

3 TBS butter

1 cup heavy cream

4 cloves garlic, minced

kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper

8 ounces fettuccine 

chopped fresh parsley

lemon wedges for serving, optional 

Also you can serve this with sliced chicken, salmon or shrimp.

Here is what you need to do:

In a saucepan, large enough to hold the fettuccine after you cook it, melt the butter over medium heat. Add in the cream and bring it to a simmer, not a boil. Whisk often for 5 minutes.

Add in the garlic, whisk for a minute. Add in the Parmesan and continue whisking until melted. Helpful hint the Parmesan will melt faster if it's a room temperature when you add it. 

Add a little salt and pepper and taste. Adjust to your liking.

Cook the fettuccine according to package directions, minus about a minute because you are going to add it to your sauce where it will finish cooking. Also reserve a little pasta water to thin out the sauce if needed.

When the fettuccine is ready, add it to the sauce and toss to coat for about a minute. Slide into a serving dish and top with parsley and lemon if you like. Let's Eat!!
